Secretary General LI Baodong Meets with Gutierrez
Origin:Boao Forum for Asia      Time:2018-05-17 16:38:14    Views:620


On May 17, 2018, Secretary General LI Baodong met with Mr. Carlos Gutierrez, Member of BFA Board and Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, at the BFA Secretariat.

LI welcomed Gutierrez for visiting the Secretariat, which was the first time by the latter in his capacity as a BFA Board Member. The two exchanged views on the BFA annual work plan as well as on its development strategies in the long run.

They both agreed that the Forum as the premier forum of the region, should not only focus on Asia issues but also embrace the whole world as well. While sticking to its traditional economic topics, it should further expand to fields like disruptive technologies, healthcare, education, culture and media, integrating those five areas into BFA agenda in its future activities. BFA should be built into a front running platform, leading debates, reaching consensus and coming up with inspiring ideas, solutions and initiatives, for the development of the region and the world at large.

Gutierrez said that he feels happy and honored to be elected as a BFA Board Member and pledged to do his best for the Forum, and that he fully agrees with LI's vision on BFA's annual work and development. Gutierrez hoped that BFA could further expand its footprint to the U.S. sometime in the future.
